​Where I Started

This song is by Wide Mouth Mason and appears on the album Where I Started (1999).

In the midst of this cruel healing
I find myself out in the cold
An eastward murder caught me staggering
You're here but I'm alone

In the phosphor blue of this night time
All our lies freeze hazy
Your smiles are knives they tear me
As your shadow turns you ugly

But it's all right 'cause you didn't mean to
But it's all right 'cause you don't know what you did
Yeah, it's all right now
You brought me right back down to where I started

With an offering her words hang heavy
And it won't be long before they come down
I was mystified they rang so easy
Surprised myself and followed her out

And they will come sweeping over
Picking up what's left of you

And I will keep my hand steady
And I will keep myself ready
